The Friends of Traphill Branch Library have a yard sale set up at the Traphill Tan & Tone on Traphill Road until Christmas. There are lots of great bargains.

New books available to check out at the Traphill Branch Library include “Foreign Affairs” by Stuart Woods, “The Golem of Paris” by Jonathan Kellerman, “The Guilty” by David Baldacci, “The Amish Heart of Ice Mountain” by Kelly Long, “The Christmas Cradle” by Charlotte Hubbard, “Christmas in Mustang Creek” by Linda Lael Miller, “Come Rain or Come Shine” by Jan Karon, “Devoted in Death” by J.D. Robb, and “Dorothy Must Die” by Danielle Paige.

The library will be closed for Christmas on Dec. 24 and 26 and close at 5 p.m. on New Year’s Eve, Dec. 31. The Wifi will be available if you need Internet access for your new laptop or tablet you got for Christmas.

Several churches have had Christmas programs and hope you’ve had a chance to see one or two or them. With all this warm weather it doesn’t seem like Christmas. My forsythia bushes have blooms on them.

Kennedy, Dalton Jessup and Brad Brown on Dec. 22; Garrett Fender, Rachel Fender and Hobert Johnson on Dec. 23; Hilda Cleary and Brittany Burton Cox on Dec. 24; Christopher Stivers Jr., Doris Bryant, Belinda Miles, Abigail Billings and Kourtnie Johnson on Dec. 25; and Trent Cleary and Cash Wilmoth on Dec. 27.
